Featuring NXT, police and firefighter teams among others, the competition is open to the public.

To prepare for the event, NXT coaches and superstars trained with their 10 Special Olympic athletes (with three to five Special Olympic officials) at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando. WWE Strength & Conditioning Coach Matt Wichlinski led the training, and the Olympians enjoyed pizza afterward.

Team NXT includes Matt Bloom (6-7, 350); Baron Corbin (6-8, 280); Bull Dempsey (6-2, 300); Bill DeMott (6-2, 280); Sawyer Fulton (6-8, 285); Billy Gunn (6-3, 260); Tucker Knight (6-2, 285); Konnor (6-5, 215); Mike Rallis (6-2, 250); and Braun Stowman (6-8, 380).

NXT’s Rich Brennan and Corey Graves will be the announcers.
